Brian MonkeySoul Stanton We need more volunteer leaders, interns to help newbies. Anyone available Saturdays? The bus does not run Sundays, and many people have family, church obligations. I can help train to start off.02.05.2015 at 04:46 pmLike

Annette Gilley I have loved hunting for things on this map. I don't know how to add or delete things from the map, but i know the white yams listed near SW 8th St are gone because they are building apartments there.30.04.2015 at 06:18 am1Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Thanks, Michael Adler ironically helped removed those I think. He used to lead forage events there. I forgot to update, thanks. I can edit our version, but I think you can log in to theirs and edit also.30.04.2015 at 02:28 pm1view 2 more commentsMichael Adler Yeah haha. I got a job spraying them. They didn't die, but you probably don't want to eat them30.04.2015 at 09:15 pm1Texotic Fruit Orchard The feijoa flowers should be blooming now. The petals are like popcorn that tastes like sweet cinnamon. They are a very popular landscaping bush. The petals taste best when they get softer. You can remove them and it will still produce fruit if you do not remove the stamen. at 10:57 pm

Caribbean Oregano

Caribbean Oregano (Plectranthus amboinicus) may be grown in your vegetable or herb garden or as a potted specimen. The leaves of this succulent herb are fleshy and strongly aromatic. Leaves are often used Caribbean cooking and also as a substitute for sage. The leaves are used medicinally in India as a cure for coughs.

Soil and Water: No special soil requirements are known. Average water needs – do not over water.
Sun: Part sun to shade.
Cold: Will be killed by frost.
Pruning: Pruning will promote branching and can rejuvenate an old lanky plant.
Propagation: Roots easily from cuttings placed in soil.
Pests: None are known.

Harvesting, storage, and preparation: Young leaves have a milder flavor. Using too many leaves could overwhelm the flavor of a dish; when used in moderation the taste pleasant and similar to sage. The flavor is very amenable to beans. The leaves can be used fresh and chopped finely or dried for storage and crumbled. Drying the leaves can take quite a while, especially if they are left attached to the stem.
